Sleepy Drivers Die - Tasmania

Sleep Disorders Australia has launched a campaign in Tasmania sponsored by the Motor Accident Insurance Board (MAIB) and the Tasmanian Government. The SDA Tasmania Branch has produced a TV ad and a brochure to help raise awareness and educate people about the dangers of driving without adequate sleep. Many Australians don't realise that driving when sleep-deprived can be just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated by alcohol or drugs. Too many people consider driving while tired to be a normal part of everyday life. It is important that people know that this behaviour causes crashes and is killing people. If you are sleepy, you should stop driving.
